I believe that my relationship with you as my client is one of the most important things in helping you. Therefore, I will take time to listen to your story, find out about your goals for coming to counseling and work with you in designing the best ways to achieve them together. If you find yourself in the middle of a difficult relationship with your spouse or your partner, I will assist you in learning tools that can help you reconnect and rekindle your love for each other. If you feel discouraged and lonely, we will spend time discovering your unique design and where you fit best in this big world. If you are held back and crippled by anxiety, I hope to provide a safe place for you to understand the origins of your fears and learn how you can either cope with or overcome them. I am passionate about my work as a counselor and helping others navigate through the process of learning, growth and change.

More Info About My Practice

I am a therapist and an Executive Director at Agape Christian Counseling. We offer professional counseling from a Christian perspective, integrating proven psychological insights with Biblical truths. Our counselors are Christians who are also highly trained mental health professionals. We specialize in couples counseling, premarital counseling, substance abuse and addictions counseling, individual counseling for depression, anxiety, anger, mood disorders, and post-traumatic stress from sexual abuse, domestic violence, or other traumatic events. Agape is a Greek word used in the New Testament and signifies unconditional love and acceptance that God has for us. Likewise, we will support you and equip you, so that you can experience the abundant life, loving relationships, and purpose that God desires for you. While taking an integrative approach to therapy, we welcome all people who seek counseling, regardless of religious background.
